What a Large Enterprise CIO Would Think of the SAP Cloud Position
SAP’s Cloud Strategy has taken some big turns. But, will it be a boon for all businesses.
The implication is that SAP is building and promoting cloud, HANA and mobile apps that connect to pre-existing application suites (e.g., BusinessOne, Business ByDesign and Enterprise Suite). They are not planning on materially re-working the Enterprise Suite code anytime soon.
Bottom line: SAP cloud progress has been notable. BUT, the benefits will be uneven with mid-market buyers getting a better value experience in the short term.
